    The primitive, ribald Georgia rustics of Erskine Caldwell’s sizzling bestseller are brilliantly brought to the screen by legendary director Anthony Mann (Men in War) and screenwriter Philip Yordan (Johnny Guitar). This widely acclaimed American classic was provocative for it’s day and has lost none of its zest and luster. Robert Ryan (The Set-Up), in what many critics claim to be one of his best roles plays Ty Ty Walden, the poor farmer convinced that there’s golden treasure buried somewhere on his land. He spends years digging up the farm, littering the fields with empty holes, in his fruitless quest for riches and leaving his family and his sharecroppers to languish in poverty. Ty Ty lives with his two sons Buck (Jack Lord) and Shaw (Vic Morrow), his free-spirited youngest daughter Darlin’ Jill (Fay Spain) and Buck’s sultry wife, Griselda (Tina Louise) who’s still in love with her ex-beau Will Thompson (Aldo Ray), now married to Walden’s oldest daughter Rosamund (Helen Westcott). The stellar cast also includes Buddy Hackett as Pluto Swint, a friend of the family running for Sheriff who’s obsessed with Darlin’ Jill; Rex Ingram as Uncle Felix, the black sharecropper and friend to the family living on Ty Ty’s land; Michael Landon as the albino Dave Dawson and Lance Fuller as Jim Leslie, Ty Ty’s eldest son who’s moved on and turned his back on his family.
